Pay Question

 ... I didn't sign a contact for my job ("teacher" at a private daycare/preschool), however my boss did agree on paying me salary instead of hourly... does that mean there is an automatic contract even if I didn't sign a contract?


DKDC?
Are you paid salary or hourly at your job?  Would you prefer the opposite of what you are paid for what you do?


edited for my answer:
I'm paid salary, but still WAY below market rate.  Hourly would work out better for me with all that I do, but I'd be fired for the overtime that I would occur because I always stay a couple of hours past my scheduled time working with the kids.


*** I put teacher in quotes because  I am a certified full time teacher, but the parents don't think of this place as a school yet because it was just a daycare before, so most of my kids show up around 10 or 11 which is after I've taught the main lessons.  The rest of the day the kids are in an activity such as soccer, followed by lunch, and nap for two hours.  Right after nap I leave for the day thus I don't really get to teach most of my students.

do you think a fruit salad with bananas, kiwis, blood oranges and red pears would be tasty, or are those 4 fruits too out there? i made one over the summer with kiwi, peach and plum, but peaches and plums are harder to find in december. if i make this one, i will probably put cinnamon in it as well.

do you ever try to be so quiet doing something for whatever reason but end up making the most noise ever?

i just went downstairs to get a bowl of cereal and was trying to be so quiet bc my mom is sleeping, but ended up smashing the bowl on the cupboard, which fell to the ground, waking my mom up.  luckily it didnt break.

way to go, me.

My family is doing a white elephant exchange thing. Most money one can spend is $10. There will be about 6 kids below 12 years old, and 7 adults. Last year's coveted item was a large bucket of airheads (about 100). But this year - I want MINE to be the most desired gift... a shitload of pocky has already been claimed. What should I get?

Retail workers - what, if anything, do you do when parents say to their kids "Be good or the man/lady will growl at you."

I remembered today about when I worked in a supermarket and parents who couldn't be bothered disciplining their kids would make me be the bad guy. One day I got sick of it, and started saying to the kids "No I won't, that's Mommy's job."

My fiance and I live in Missouri while the majority of our family lives elsewhere in the country. We keep in contact with a lot of them through Facebook. This is our first child together. We have the big things like a crib, carseat and some clothes but there are still a few things we could use and I know a lot of them want to get us something...

Do you think I should post something on Facebook about our registry or do you think that would come across too forward, like we expect everyone else to buy things for our child? I'm pretty independent and I don't want to make the impression that I can't take care of my own child and I certainly don't want anyone to feel obligated to buy us something.

Hey you guys <3

I have a personal essay to write. It's part of a series of three papers that focus on an important place, person or event that has significantly affected who you've become etc.
I have done the person and event: I spoke about my psychologist, anxiety and depression in the former and the latter placing 2nd internationally for tennis blahblahblah.

Anyway, the only important place I can think of is the psychiatric hospital I spent 10 days in for anorexia/depression etc. Well, that's sort of depressing lol. And I don't want to write about that if I can't be completely honest; I don't want to sacrifice my personal authencity to make it more ~bearable for someone else... because I don't really give a shit. It's either I am honest or I don't write about that place.

Will you share important places in your life to inspire me and jolt my memory? I think you will because you are a very kind, thoughtful person. :D

Today I was in a lecture and a group of people a couple of rows behind me started having a conversation. They were whispering but the lecturer could hear them. He looked up at them, they stopped for a little while and he went on with the lecture. After that they started up again. He looked up at them, pointed and said, "Excuse me. You, YOU. Yes, you in the middle. Stop that, it's distracting".

What would have done if you were the lecturer?

If you go to/went to uni: do/did students talk to each other during lectures?

How irritating do you find it when people whisper to try to be less distracting but you can hear the whispering?

I'm pretty sure the group of people talking also talk to each other during one of our seminars (but I'm not sure because I didn't look behind me when he was telling them off, because I figured they were embarrassed enough already.)
It made me realize that I've never had an experience like that at my uni in Australia. People just go on facebook if they've got their laptop with them, or just don't show up at all.

How many tabs do you have open right now?

I just saw this and started, mostly because Charity:Water is one of the organizations featured and I think it is a fantastic organization. If you decide to use it, it records how many tabs you open (but not what is in the tab or anything like that, just the actual number) and then at the end of the day, lets you choose which charity to donate your tabs to.

The site seems to list 230 tabs as being equivalent to 9 vaccinations, 23 books, 1 person's clean water, 2 square feet of shelter, or 23 trees (all dependent upon which charity you choose) so I'm making sure to open as many tabs as possible today and the next few until the end of the campaign!

My upstairs neighbor seems to think that 7:30am is the optimal time to be hammering (I'm assuming he was hanging pictures or something, since he just moved in). He also likes to listen to his music loudly (which I've spoken to him about), move furniture at 10:30 at night, and be a general pain in the ass about the locks on the front door.

How can I get him evicted? Srs/nonsrs answers welcome.

Let's say you are talking to your boss about a situation at work. It was totally preventable, might end up in the company losing customers (we can't get the products out on time), and is going to end up costing the company money. What do you think an appropriate reaction would be? Is "well sometimes shit happens" an appropriate response?

Do you prefer a decisive boss or a wishy-washy one? If you had to choose, would you rather a boss that was a bit more firm but consistent, or one who was more lenient but rather inconsistent?

Finals.

I have a final that is due Saturday at 5 PM. Saturday is the day we're doing my family Christmas, so I can't go take it that day. It's supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow (with ice and I live in bumfucknowhere and campus is in even more bumfucknowhere). Roads are fine today, but I haven't studied at all (okay, I have, but not enough).

So, do I cram today and try and make it to campus before 5 PM and take the final?
Study today and tomorrow while it snows and go take it Friday?
Study today, tomorrow, Friday, and risk it snowing again and my family killing me and go take it Saturday?

It's Accounting. My passing is riding on this final. I have to pass to take another stupid Accounting class.

this is weird right?
at my work theres there man, who always say i remind him of his daughter (his son and daughter live a 4 hr plane ride away)
hes married, has pictures of his wife/family, wears his wedding ring (although he takes it off randomly throughout the day sometimes), talks about them all too.
hes very nice to me, always asks how i am, how my day is, is generally interested in whats going on with my life (knows i have a bf)
he even makes sure i have lunch (i have issues with eating), and often gives me/brings me/buys me lunch/snacks.
he asked me if i could watch his dog when he and his wife go to visit his kids bc his dog watcher is not available anymore.
he likes music and movies and we often talk about them, and we generally like the same type of both.
yesterday he asked if i could come meet his dog, at his house after work, so the dog knows me when i dog sit.
i agreed.  then he said he was going to make me dinner, and asked if i wanted to see Black Swan (we both really want to see it) and told me to bring "nice music" to his house and he'll "take care of the rest."

Dumb joke is dumb

I saw this interesting video about how to cut your hair into bangs, and I feel I'm ready to give it a try. I just need a volunteer for my bang-giving. Now, I've placed on the kitchen table a dropcloth to catch the falling hair, so we'll have to do the cutting over that table. And, you're going to have to be patient with me, for the only scissors I have in my house are large novelty scissors I got from a county fair. They're a foot long, but they'll do the trick.

So, to recap...

I neeeeed to study for my final on Friday, but at home I'm finding it very hard to concentrate with my downstairs neighbor blasting Christmas music. And, well, the internet. I have a few options. I could walk down the street to the library, go to a nearby college campus (where I used to attend) and find a quiet place to study there, or go to my own campus which is farther but I might run into people from my class to study with. Or I could just stay home.

Pros and cons!
Library
Pro - Don't need to drive to get there.
Con - Would have to walk a mile in 22° weather to get there. Might be too crowded.

Campus 1
Pro - Around other studious students, not far, surrounded by food places, many places to study.
Cons - Probably a pro in disguise, but I wouldn't have internet access.

Campus 2
Pro - If people from my class are there, and they're interested in studying together, that could be beneficial. But would still be around other studiers even if they're not.
Cons - It's farther away, and I don't like driving long distances after dark when it's this cold, in case I'm out that late.

Home
Pro - All my stuff is here!
Con - All my stuff is here.

I quit my job December 4th because I was tired of my manager bullying me and being treated like shit.  I had worked there for four years but only one year under this new management. The straw that broke my back was when another supervisor called me a bitch and other things on the floor in front of other customers. When I asked my manager to make him stop, he said "don't be mad, he just wants you to know that he is better then you" so I quit and the manager stood in front of the door and tried to bully me into staying. I left because it was such a hostile environment.

Its been almost two weeks since my check became available. They have it in the office but they won't give it to me. They said I owe them money, but they have no reason for me owing them money. I refuse to give them money for nothing, especially because its half my paycheck. I really need the money because I have bills.

I've tried talking to them and I emailed the labor board for help.

Is there anything else I can do?

Fruit Bruschetta

I have a potluck on the weekend top go to and was planning to bring Fruit Bruschetta. The recipe calls for cream cheese to be spread on pound cake with fruit on top. I am not a huge fan of cream cheese, but can't think of what else I could use to help hold the fruit in place. My boyfriend wants me to use whipped cream, but I am worried the toasted bread would melt it and make a soggy mess before we even arrive to the party.

You guys are always helpful when cooking/baking questions are asked so I thought I would give it a try. Does anyone have any ideas what I can use instead of cream cheese??

Thanks in advance :)

You're at a bar with a friend, sitting at a table in the corner. The widescreen tv is within your line of sight and it's not loud so you can hear it, too. Suddenly, there's a newsflash, as they interrupt the ballgame. They show a sketch artist's drawing that looks a LOT like you, down to the lapel of the jacket you're wearing. The newsman talks about how this person robbed a Starbucks and shot 6 people and still on the loose. The newsman then goes on to warn the public to be on the lookout for this individual, who may have ducked into a restaurant or bar and is considered dangerous, but if you see this person, call 911 and try and stall them before they go out and kill again. What do you do?

Here's the situation: I have a friend who lives in a different state, she's 7 months pregnant, is keeping it but she's had a very horrible time with everything (baby daddy issues, no money, no family support, wanted to give it up for adoption originally, admitted to feeling a lot of resentment towards the baby). As of now, she's planning on keeping the baby and seems to made a little a peace about it but it's still a really weird situation at least as an outsider. 

Here's the question: Would it be weird to send her baby related presents? I love her, I love babies, I love sending presents. I want to do something but I can't do much since I live so far and am unable to travel. Should I wait until the baby is born and see if she keeps him to send presents?

TQC, teach me some physics! Can you explain what's going on with my oil burner? Two very strange things have happened with it in the past year that I can't explain.

I've had this burner for years, and always set it up the same way. It's a metal stand with a glass dish. Same amount of water and oil in the dish, same candles, etc (though different oils). And every time I've used it, it's gone exactly the same - candle burns down, dish heats up, water evaporates, heated oil burns and fills the room with a nice scent. But not these two times.

1. Set it up the same as always, but after the candle had burned out, not a drop of water was missing from the dish.
2. And what happened tonight. The water started *boiling*. I've never seen that happen before!

I just found an old pocket watch. I wear a waistcoat pretty much everyday so this is awesome. Problem is, it apparently stopped working at 10:14 about sixty or so years old. I can only turn the knob one way so I think it's broken rather than in need of a good winding. Does anyone here know anything about old-ass watches? Would it be worth trying to get it fixed or is it so old by now that it wouldn't keep good time?

Will you tell me about some totally bitchin' old stuff you own? Bonus points for pictures.

Help me pweease.

So I cannot find my prescription of prozac - I have severe anxiety, clinical depression and am recovering from anorexia nervosa rn. I NEED PROZAC. I had a panic attack in my HL psychology class the day before yesterday and I had another today in school :( I don't know when I am going to find my prescription.

What can I do to deal with the anxiety until I find it? I mean just right now I feel so anxious and jittery, despite being in the totally nonthreatening position of being in home on my bed doing work.

Edit: Chyeah!!!! It was found. Thank you all for the words of wisdom etc. I truly appreciate it. :))

If a job called me yesterday at 11 AM-ish... is tomorrow to late to return the call? I just realized they called.

Also, I'm out of state right now and won't be back until Monday. Would that be too late to ask for an interview (I mean I'll call ASAP tomorrow)?

It's at Sun Tan City for what it's worth
